I don't know what it is, but it is the nicest one I ever saw.

It has a shaft lock for changing the bit. Don't forget and turn the thing on with the lock engaged. You'll let out the magic smoke. The thing won't work without the magic smoke. I know.

Better to let the magic smoke out of the sharpener, than say out of the tractor battery.:eek::D

Callous tool?

Ya know, I still prefer a round file. I like the old-style adjustable guide from Oregon to use it in.


Mind you, I'm hardly using a chainsaw at all these days. I might change my tune if I were cutting wood to heat the house with.

Paul,

I thought at first you meant the Church Key

But then, I realized that you probably knew a Church Key is more important than that :D;):rolleyes:

John - I've got the exact same opener. I inherited it from Dad. A "mate" stole her a couple of years ago - but I paid him a visit and recovered her.

Unbelievable - I have the same opener that I inherited from my Dad's uncle.

Any idea where these came from?

She's my primary bottle opener. She's polished in all the right places too... from appropriate usage, of course.

Wasn't his last "tool" thread about a lathe that was used for decades to make dildos. Is this the male version tool?

Whatever it is,i would guess that its primary use is to smooth the inside of a surface or to clean up a surface in a small area. It could actually be used to clean up the occaasional burr you might find on a tire rim ...but I think its application is intended for small areas of a wood surface.It does grind away a small area of wood [?] or the surface of plastic ..kind of like a mini hand held belt sander for edges but a bit less controllable,less refined.
p.s. i think it would normally be a flat edge or surface

Oh my God!!! This looks just like the Holy Mother of Merlot......just before she was cannonized!!! I even have a poster of her somewhere from the time she was busy saving souls and dispensing free advice at one of the strip cl.........I mean, chapels.

Hang on to her John and never hesitate to call on her when the going gets thick:D:D


Cheers!

I just bring a few sharp chains into the woods with me. Sharpen them at my leisure in the shop at home.
